Emirates and the EU

Connectivity supports economic development

Emirates began flying to the EU in 1987 and has grown in a progressive manner, in line with demand, to both major and secondary cities across Europe. We fly over 430 wide-body passenger flights and 58 all-cargo flights to and from the EU every week, and currently fly to 18 of the 28 Member States: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

In 2015 Emirates commissioned a report from leading global research firm Frontier Economics to quantify the economic and jobs impact of our passenger and cargo operations in the EU.

Frontier’s report re-affirms that Emirates plays an important role in supporting EU jobs, growth and economic development.
